to arrive in montana for a town hall event, ready to challenge what he calls myths about his health care reform effort. white house officials tell me prospects are changing right now, but not in the way you think. i'll talk with white house health care czar about that, about president obama's deal with companies and the strategy after the august recess. >>> have the town hall gathering forced them to back away from the death panels? are republicans like sarah palin winning or losing? and does the president still have the communications mojo to make this work. i'll talk with paul krugman. >>> good day. i'm john harwood of cnbc and "the new york times." this is "the new york times special edition." on the front page this hour, president obama expected to arrive any moment in montana. at the end of this hour, he'll be holding his second town hall meeting on health care this week. you can see it here on msnbc. he'll hold another one tomorrow in colorado. he's trying once again to sell his plan to the people concerned about big government and price tags. no better place for that than big sky
with montana democrats. and now the denver post one of the largest papers in the mountain region is calling for a public option, saying it's the only way to bring about real reform. it it's the best way to slow escalating health care costs and expand access to quality care. the country ultimately will lose if the public option vanishes because of the democratic's best effort to reform health care. what's going on with max baucus. >> i think we'll feel the impact of that editorial, we have got a lot of congressional elections here that are going to be contested. congressman john salazar is up for a tough election. becky mary up for a tough election and i think you'll see the republican editorial peace sup for debate. they have said that they conc t conceptually support a public option. but you never know what's going to happen in the negotiation. in relation to max baucus, a new poll came out showing that the democrats in montana, quite a small state are extremely unhappy with baucus on the issue of health care and baucus who said he strongly supports a public option, but has subsequently -
there in montana. 47% of the people in montana want a public health insurance plan. 43% oppose it. that's according to a new research 2000 poll. this proves healthcare reform is not just a liberal issue. it's harder to find a redder state than montana. a lot of guns up there. plus baucus has got problems with the democratic base. 55% of montana democrats disapprove of his handling of healthcare. baucus is feeling the heat from lefties. he was getting hammered on a conference call with democrats last monday night and wound up saying, "i want a public option too." very interesting. now we know baucus likes the public option because he put it out at his healthcare playbook back in november after the election. he did that. so that's a position, a flip, and a flip. okay. so what's changed? the town hall nuts are making their knees shaky? is that what's going on? or is it all the industry money in the pockets? speaking of industry money, ken conrad, north dakota senator, chairman of the senate budget committee and wone of the gang f six, or musketeers of six on the finance committee. he's pushing the cra
to montana. this was just before they spelled out how they would have cost savings. megyn: what do you realistically predict for these seniors, as a result of these potential cuts? he says he is reducing inefficiencies, so what would happen? >> the program would simply go away. no insurance company making 20% profit on this program would continue this. this program would go away and seniors would no longer have -- i suspect every medicare advantage holder would lose their plan overnight. megyn: how do we know what to believe? you are telling us this, and president obama has said repeatedly that he will not cut benefits, that his plan will strengthen medicare and reduce abuse. as well, they are going to put $240 billion more into medicare to ensure physician payment are not cut. who can we believe? >> people just need to apply logic. if you cut a program by 20%, it boggles the imagination that the program can still exist -- that assumes that profit margins from insurance companies are 20%. you would have to be in microsoft or google to have that kind of profit margins. just think about
-election at all. his polls are way down out in montana and this is a somewhat embattled figure within washington. this is someone that a lot of democrats just don't trust. a lot of republicans don't trust and -- >> why don't they trust him? why don't they trust him? is it because he doesn't -- i mean, does he go back on his word or is he just a guy who doesn't play sides? >> i think he's a guy -- i think probably more the latter. i think, you know, he was for the bush tax cuts in 2001. he had to deal with chuck grassley last year and then he sort of turned around and supported the democrats on a key medicare bill last summer. he does sort of play both sides of the fence which i guess is smart if you want to get re-elected every six years in montana but, again, he seemed shell-shocked by the whole situation now. i saw him in a town hall meeting. he was actually surrounded by youtubes as he called him, which i think he meant cameras. no, it's true. there are even people with youtubes in the audience and i was like, whoa. he said i think i meant cameras but, anyway, i put it in my story. it went vi
